Database Research Summaries2018 Management strategies to improve yield and profitability in soybean under different planting dates
The focus of this project is to optimize management strategies for soybean planted at different times during the growing season for maximum yield and profitability.
- maturity group in a given location to maximize yield and avoid frost damage.
- Quantify the benefit of seed treatment in early- compared to mid- and late-season soybean planting at optimum and low or high seeding rates.
- Optimize management strategies for soybean planted at different times during the growing season for maximum yield and profitability.
- The optimum planting date is important for higher soybean yield, quality and profit.
- The seeding rate as low as 90,000 seeds/acre had no significant effect on net return.
- There was a response to higher seeding rate under late planting conditions.
- The benefits from seed treatment were limited to stand improvements.
- This research will be important in providing information to growers for effective management of soybean planted at different times during the growing season.
- This research will provide specific agronomic information on optimum maturity group based on planting dates and geographical location, as well as effects of seed treatment and seeding rates while planting early vs. late in the growing season.
